Did well compared to other cultures.

The Old Testament has many principles, but a simple good measure is just keeping the Sabbath. The early Protestants were the only Christians who took the Sabbath seriously.

So a culture that killed someone that didn't keep the Sabbath was superior to other cultures? Facepalm

The Sabbath law was just their brand of theocratic barbarism.

By what criteria?

Quote:The Old Testament has many principles, but a simple good measure is just keeping the Sabbath. The early Protestants were the only Christians who took the Sabbath seriously.

So, if I understand it,
p1) protestants kept the sabbath
p2) you judge them to have "done well" by some unspecified criteria
c) keeping the sabbath helps a culture "do well"

Facepalm

I am pro-war because war is the way that cultures are tested. I look forward to seeing modern culture lose wars and its population be slaughtered for the cultural and genetic good of humanity.

And you really think it's not your fault for getting banned from forums? You are provocative and condone and even advocate for horrendous things.

Fuck you and your ideals. You're free to have them and talk about them, but they are disgusting.

Dear Odin you better be a Poe.

If you honestly believe that the only cultures that lose wars are ones who deserve it, then I'm sorry to have to break it to you, fschmidt, but right does not make might.

I don't think he is. I think that fschmidt is a terrorist who should be on a watch list.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?
